lowes foods grand opening and coupons

new lowes foods grand opening wednesday january 20th
mooresville town square
125 center square drive

so, did you get the $10 off/$50 coupon from lowes foods in the mail?

i went to lowes to check out a few things.
first, if you have the old lowes reward card, you have to upgrade to the lowes "fresh rewards" card. you can do that in the store at the front, or online.
they have a lot of complicated programs in place, i really don't know if it's worth all the work!

they have instasave. these are offers you see online and load to your card. at the bottom of the page, it states that these cannot be combined with paper coupons.

next, they have fresh rewards.
this is where you earn cash back on future orders for buying certain things.

also, in the store they have a flyer that has some "3 week coupons".
apparently they scan those and you get a special price. i picked one up. nothing too great.

they DO double coupons everyday.
they DO have an online shopping service, so you can check prices.

they have a pretty strict coupon policy.
Coupon Policy

    We recognize that our customers are looking for more ways to save their hard-earned dollars and using coupons is one of the best ways to save additional money. To allow all of our customers to enjoy these additional savings, our prevailing guideline is that Lowes Foods reserves the right to limit quantities in coupon usage and product purchases.

Manufacturer Coupon Policy

    Lowes Foods welcomes legitimate manufacturer coupons when the following requirements are met:

    • Coupons must be in date.
    • Coupons must match the item(s) purchased.
    • Coupons must be presented at the time of purchase.
    • To ensure product availability for all customers, we limit redemption to 4 coupons for 4 of the same item. For example, if you have five coupons for a specific cereal and have purchased five of the item, we will honor the coupon for up to four of the boxes of cereal.
    • All sales taxes are paid by the customer at the full retail value of the item.
    • Coupon value cannot exceed our retail price of the item; no cash back will be awarded.
Double Coupons
    • We will double up to 20 manufacturer coupons with a face value of $0.99 or less every day.
    • No minimum purchase is required.
    • Manufacturer coupons for FREE items or Buy One, Get One FREE items will not be doubled.
    • Any manufacturer coupon that states -Do not double- will not be doubled.
    • A doubled coupon will not be honored if the doubled amount exceeds the retail or sale price of the coupon item. No cash back will be awarded.
Other Coupon Promotions
    • From time to time, our manufacturer coupon promotions will be enhanced. For example, we may offer our customers the opportunity to triple their coupons. Special promotional opportunities will be featured in our circular or on-line.
Internet Coupons
      We gladly accept legitimate internet coupons. However, there has been a growing number of fraudulent internet coupons in the marketplace. We are committed to protecting our customers, manufacturers and our company against this illegal activity. Therefore, Lowes Foods will practice the following guidelines for internet coupons:
      • We will only accept printable internet coupons if they scan at checkout.
      • We will not honor FREE Product coupons printed from the Internet.
      • We will accept Buy One Get One FREE and other values that have a purchase requirement.
      • We will accept internet coupons that have an expiration date. If no expiration date is visible, we cannot accept the coupon.
      • Coupons will be rejected if they are distorted, altered or obvious duplicates. Coupons are non-transferrable, meaning they should not be photocopied or scanned and distributed to others.
      • Coupons have unique serial numbers printed on them and follow industry-standard format. Any presented coupon that does not follow standard format will not be accepted.
      • Internet coupon limits are the same as manufacturer and store coupons.

Store Coupons
    • In order to redeem store coupons, a Lowes Foods rewards card must be used.
    • Store coupons must be in date.
    • All limits and purchase requirements must be followed.
Competitor’s Coupons
  • We gladly accept local supermarket or supercenter competitor’s circular or direct mail coupons for dollars off the entire order. (examples include Food Lion, Harris Teeter, Bi-Lo, Kroger, Super Target, Super K-Mart, Wal-mart)
  • We will not accept any competitor coupons for specific items. For example, we will not accept a competitor’s coupon for $1.00 off of an individual item.
  • Purchase requirements must be met.
  • Coupon must be in-date.
  • We will not accept any type of internet coupons from any other retailers.
  • We will not accept any type of competitor coupons from drug stores or club stores.
  • We will accept Catalina Check-out Manufacturer coupons from competitors as long as they are in date, all purchase requirements are met, and they scan.
so, bottom line, i will be watching for great deals with the grand opening, but i don't know if i'm willing to give up my harris teeter dollars!
